any fallout or benefit from hurricane sandy for the candidates? guest: i think it's becoming clear that this has been a plus for president obama. how big, we will see. if you are the incumbents and you're in a tough race, what do you want to do? you want to look presidential. that's a great advantage of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by mond
. then he started seeing tapering off. it was tapering off at least a week before hurricane sandy. a lot of people are saying, sandy killed him. i think that was more icing on the cake. he was already dropping before the hurricane came along. he did engage a lot of voters who were not paying attention to him that the debate was the first positive experience they have had considering mitt romney. a really put the brakes enclave of not enough. i will talk about that more and a couple of minutes. i think we felt good about how we looked at it. one of the things i denture the senate. there were 10 tossup races. if you come down to -- north dakota. if they both go democratic, democratic would have won nine out of the 10 tossup races. if they go the spread democrats or have 17-10. we talked abut it a little bit before the election -- the last group of tossup races. they never break and the marrow. they tend to break two there is one way and one-third with the other. whatever the guest of wind is. maybe it was sandy related and maybe not, but it was a positive gust of wind for the president. wh

3. >> update on the response to hurricane sandy. >> afternoon, everybody. i will be brief because i figure you got more questions. some of the highlights from the last couple of days. as of this morning, around 6:00 a.m., and we will have numbers later this afternoon be looked at you, but 317,000 folks have registered in the three states for individual assistance. and a total of -- is three had a 20 million for the three states. the yesterday northeaster had impacts appeared in many cases precautionary measures were taken to shut down operations. there was concern about that, but it was based on the forecast the day before when decisions were made, said those were done in coordination with state and local officials. power outages increased slightly. power outages due to the nor'easter did increase the number of customers without power, and as of this morning, about 42,000 people in addition to those who have lost power from sandy are reported out. that number is down from the original impacts of the northeastern, but we continue to cede power restoration. the numbers improved. with
. after the first campaign, romney was ahead for a it little bit. around halloween, the sandy news started to kick in. president obama went ahead by point or less. do you see sandy play in? >> it robbed the challenger. it brought them for 3 or four days, six news cycles. the core issue was the economy. he wasn't able to get that message through for a few days. to some voters, it probably reminded some voters that this guy is reaching across party lines and reaching to the governor from new jersey. they're sitting in for the first time. i think it did help obama by freezing things for a few days and giving him that commander in chief aura. >> there is an important role that the federal government plays. romney and paul ryan talked about the government needs to get out of the way. >> romney specifically said he would cut fema. >> the last thing people want when catastrophe strikes is the government to get out of the way. >> some people remember obama came in in the middle of a crisis and he was cool headed. they were reminded that this guy doesn't react as much emotionally as we like to saee

in this campaign was the super storm sandy not only suspending the campaign immediate coverage for generating the endorsement -- bloomberg endorsement and on the other hand the republican party over the years, we have seen looking over the right shoulder and tear in tehran the primaries like bob english or my castle or dick lugar and a few of knowledge climate is real work across the aisle but this may not have registered yet. yesterday for the five members of congress republicans targeted went down in defeat. one of them dan benishek is still in the bubble and may or may not carry through but four out of five went down because they were targeted for taking taking the antiscience position. i'm wondering to questions 14 whit. and for stan is there an opening for the president -- my present to go more locally on climate than he did the first time? >> is sandy a turning point in this discussion are not? >> the whole discussion of climate change has become so polarized that i think if we can address some of our economic challenges and if we can address some of our immigration challenges, there ar
to spend a good portion of this hour talking about how we as a nation can respond to superstorm sandy and the lessons that we should learn from had disaster. it's not the first that has occurred in america, and it's certainly not going to be the last. in the previous disasters we learned a few lessons but it seems as though we have achieved the necessary wisdom from those occurrences to really put in place the policies that can protect americans. first, our sense of compassion drives americans to reach out in many different ways to assist those on the east coast that were so severely harmed by this storm. our condolences go out to the families of those who were killed in the storm. our wall etc. opened to the american red cross and -- our wallets opened to the american red cross and others providing assistance. we should do that and we should do more than that. but as a congress there are things we must also do. propose alcs have been made on this -- proposals have been made on this floor to reduce the effectiveness and the support for the federal emergency management agency, not a go
surprise was hurricane sandy, with the bloomberg endorsement, christie, a bipartisan appeal, etc. on the right, you see them looking over their shoulder in terror of being taken on in primaries. yesterday four of the five members in congress targeted by the leak of co conservation went down in defeat. they were targeted for taking anti-science positions and independent districts. is the ice stunning to melt and break up in the republican party owith this reign of terror of the no-nothing wing of climate science? is there an opening for the administration to go more boldly on climate? >> is sandy a turning point? >> the whole discussion of climate change has become so polarized that i think that if we can address some of our economic challenges, if we can address some of our immigration challenges, there are things that are a whole lot higher on the priority list and trying to overcome the divine on that. eventually the progress of science will be persuasive to more and more people. but right now it has become so divisive that i wouldn't look for any sort of immediate rapprochemen
of hurricane sandy, president obama and mitt romney resumed campaigning. the candidate's weekend travel schedules made it clear where the election was likely to be decided. obama was slated to return to ohio today. saturday, sunday and monday. he was set to appear in iowa, virginia, wisconsin, florida, new hampshire and colorado. romney was doubled to campaign in ohio, went -- wisconsin, new hampshire and virginia. statewide polls differ on who was ahead in colorado and i what it should obama with a single digit lead in nevada and wisconsin. eight of nine surveys are the past week and a crucial ohio give obama a narrow edge. and we will be focusing on a violator in today's "washington journal." and our swing state series. we want to hear from voters and not-swing states. we want to hear how the election is playing out how you are. and this from the baltimore sun, charging more the candidates will go in the next couple days. ting where the candidates will go in the next couple days. again, the candidates focusing all of their attention in the days leading up to election day on as swing s
of hurricane sandy and it has disproportionately affected the philadelphia area, which is what democrats need to turn out to do well on election day. pennsylvania is not that far afield for republicans right now and if somehow they were able to win that state, you would be talking about president mitt romney. that is my one big surprise. i also think you should look at the senate race in the state because bob casey has been looking a little bit weaker than expected. tom smith is a businessman, former democrat running for the seat, who has been pulling within a few points in recent weeks. so, on the senate front that is the upset special we are looking at right now. >> tonight, watch election coverage on c-span with president obama from his headquarters in chicago and mitt romney from his headquarters -- plus key senate and house of victory and concession speeches from across the country. and throughout the night, your reaction by phone, e-mail, facebook and twitter. live coverage starts at 8:00 eastern on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org where you can also access interactive maps. find upd
the economy, i think somebody needs to work on a serious tax bill. we just had hurricane sandy on the east coast. there is a perfect example where if you put people to work, but all of our wires and power lines underground. they can build the economy. i think the republicans talk a good game. they found out, america is not the america of cleavers. this is a multiracial society, and it is only getting more. get in line, or we have seen the last of the republican party. host: thank you for the call from rhode island. a few other facebook comments this morning. budget reduction, immigration reform and education -- we will go now to seth from oklahoma on the republican line. what are your priorities for the second time? caller: right now i am a server at the hili's chain. i see polls all the time before the presidential race. i do not make judgments. i can see an amount of people that i meet that have seen what obama has done for them. two people have college degrees and they cannot find a job. three people going to vacation all school and they cannot get in the -- they cannot get -- vocationa
in this country and climate warming that got a boost in the wake of hurricane sandy and we'll have to see what happens. >> another category, things that didn't get talked about and i think that's very unfortunate and first on that list i would talk about healthcare defined as medicine, as curing things. we've had since the clinton era we've had abun dant discussions of healthcare finances and who should get insured, who shouldn't get insured. and during that same 20-year period t quantity of medicine emerging from the medical scientific pipeline has plum metted t. number of new drugs by the e.p. safment down 63% t. number of new antibiotic social security down 80%. the amount of venture cap list in the field is down three fourths depends on which source you look to. in other words we're in this situation and president obama's reelection will only enunciate this further, we are committed to taking care of everybody in this country on their healthcare. the truth of the matter is we've had crude health insurance since the act in 1986 which says you can go to an emergency room and get treated. tha
of hurricane sandy on the election. our polling showed there was an impact. our final poll showed obama with 57% and romney with 47%. we had a dead tie a week earlier. the only intervening events at that time was sandy and obama got 70% approval for his handling of the situation. a plurality of romney supporters also approved. i think in the end, it was modest. i don't think it really to hit one way or the other. i think obama had been edging a little bit had prior to the hurricane. the last two debates, not as important as the first debate. never is, but obama had not only stemmed from the's momentum following the first debate but also had developed his own. in the end, it probably helped him. the atmospherics and symbols of chris christie embracing him, but it was on the margins. may have helped in the popular vote in the northeast. we did see a big swing 4 obama elite and northeast. in our final poll, he was ahead even more. >> whenever a president can appear presidential, it's good. >> multiple other things can help him. michael bloomberg's endorsement which technically was not exactly stor
like super storm sandy is a storm we have never seen before. it is due to industrial pollution from burning fossil fuels such as petroleum. some might question is this. how much responsibility does the petroleum industry willing to take for superstar sandy and other climate disasters that are looming on the horizon? how do you justify using billions of years of energy accumulation through your own individual wealth? thank you very much. guest: thank you for the question. the oil and natural gas industry are leaders in alternative forms of energy. we take our responsibility very seriously. we have invested more than the federal government in these different forms of energy over the past 10 years. we take second seat to nobody for energy future. we understand our role and are looking always for new energy forms. we have a vast diversity of energy that we produce. climate has been a discussion in the united states for the past decade or so. carbon emissions right now are at 1992 levels. the economy has slowed down and we need to get people back to work and to get the economy recovered.
at cspan.org. >> we're going to >> in response to hurricane sandy you will hear from fema administrator and we are joined by h.u.d, secretary and red cross senior v.p. for disaster services. following remarks we will be taking questions from reporters. we will take one question per person and with that i turn it over to the administrator. >> good afternoon. the response is i think if you get in some of the areas where storm surge was people had significant flood damage in their homes and the impact is reflected in our current registrations for assistance over 217,000 have registered and over right now we're at about $199 million in assistance has already been provided t. bulk of that $1993 million in housing and $6 million for eligible cost. and the numbers we expect to don't go up as people are able to get registered and get the assistance. but this also shows why it's going to take a strong federal partnership and state local government to address the homes damaged. as power comes on it's becoming clear for many people the longer term issues will be rebuilding and repairing their home
by hurricane sandy. this panel was scheduled for last week and we've made a change so here we are. the one advantage of that is there is little time before the voting ends. the -- being able to make predictions and limit on an intervening in the event is not there. you are really on the line here. i thought dan with our to make the introductions. the longer version is in your packet. tom davis is a representative of northern virginia. and the head of the national republican campaign committee. martin frost represented texas and was a ranking member of the rules committee and chair of the democratic caucus and on the other side of the aisle, ran the democratic congressional campaign committee. both are experienced members but experience in running the national races for congress, for their respective parties. i am i to take a few minutes before we turn to -- going to take a few minutes before we turn and look at a report. it is about the redistricting or the change we have made in our district following the census and it is about the types of members who are holding the seats and whether we
's stop there. first, i want to show you "the daily news" about superstore sandy, new york hit with a $30 billion bill. "the daily news" is saying to suck it up. >> we're live at the breaching room at the white house here on c-span. jay carney is expected to brief reporters shortly. president's been at the white house today. he met earlier with leaders of several labor unions and he'll have his own news conference tomorrow at the white house. we'll have conference on the c-span networks. the house and senate both coming in today in about 35 minutes at about 2:00 p.m. eastern. off the floor of the house this week, both intelligence committees will be holding closed hearings on the attack in benghazi. also in washington today, a look ahead to the beginning of the holiday travel season next week with thanksgiving on the way. t.s.a. head talked about things t.s.a. is making. we'll show you as much as we can. this is a portion at reagan national airport in washington. >> well, good morning and, again, t.s.a. administrator, thanks for being here at ronald reagan international airport. as we loo
public. in the wake of events such as hurricane sandy, i'm committed to ensuring congress does all that it can to support those brave men and women, mr. speaker. i am pleased that this legislation is supported by the emergency services coalition on medical preparedness which works to ensure that we protect the protectors. i ask unanimous consent to insert their record of support in the record. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. bilirakis: thank you. with that i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time is reserved. the gentleman from mississippi. mr. thompson: mr. speaker, i rise in support of h.r. 5997, the medical preparedness allowable use act and i yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. thompson: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, although i support h.r. 5997, it is not without reservation and concern about the reduced funding this congress has allocated to important homeland security grant programs over the past few years. due to significantly diminished appropriation
district and throughout my state in the aftermath of hurricane sandy was nothing less than catastrophic. mr. pallone: but i really want to talk about the rebuilding effort today and what we need to do over the long term. the amount of outpouring, if you will, from volunteers, from just regular people in the district was just overwhelming. and i want to thank fema. i want to thank the red cross, the salvation army, all the different groups that are out there and continue to be out there today helping out with in effort. but the outpouring of volunteers from our own district and from new jersey was gist incredible. -- was just incredible. a few days ago i remember going to union beach, which was one of the towns hardest hit, and seeing so many people bringing food and clothing and cleaning supplies and one guy owns a pizza place, brought in a pizza oven and was making pizzas. another guy brought in a tv so people could watch tv at the center. where people come to sign up for fema. it just was amazing and it showed the spirit, if you will, of the people that they were willing to do that. but t
